    Lady Indians Split Games at Quinter

    The Lady Indians and the Quinter Lady Bulldogs split their basketball wins on Friday, December 2. The Lady Bulldogs won the varsity contest 57-67. St. Francis won the junior varsity game 25-20.

    The varsity game was a match-up between two improved teams from one year prior. Athletes from both teams competed hard throughout. The game was tied at halftime, but Quinter forged a five-point lead by the close of the third period and eventually won the contest by 10 points. Early in the contest the teams traded baskets. The Lady Indians first basket of the season was scored by freshman Taighe Weeter (assist Lauren Johnson). Quinter's Rebecca Kitch answered on an offensive rebound. St. Francis then earned a 4-point advantage on a left elbow basket by Hanna Bracelin (assist Reagan Beims) and a drive by Zoe Sundstrom. The lead would not last long, however, as Quinter's 5' 10" junior Peyton Havlas swished two free throws and Brittney Walt (5' 5" Jr.) drained a trey. At 4:40, St. Francis called the first time-out of the game trailing 6-11. After the visit, Lauren Johnson scored on an offensive rebound for the Lady Indians. Quinter followed with another trey by Crist. A free-throw line jumper by Bracelin trimmed the margin to 10-14, but then the Lady Bulldogs added two more free-throws and a press offense bucket by Havlas to lead by eight (10-18). The quarter closed with three consecutive treys, one by St. Francis and two by Quinter. St. Francis trailed 13-23 after one period of action. Twelve of the Lady Bulldogs' points had come from long range.

    Quinter scored the first four points of the second period on a pair of free-throws and a post-move by Havlas. The deficit grew to 13-27. It was looking as if Quinter might run away from the Lady Indians. St. Francis was determined and kept executing both on offense and defense. Two baskets by Emileigh Dinkel on assists from Karly Bandel (out-of-bounds play) and Hanna Bracelin (left-wing) moved the Lady Indians within ten. A free-throw by Madi Tice was followed by an offensive rebound score by Bracelin. With 3:15 left in the first half, the Lady Indians had narrowed the gap to 20-27. Havlas followed with a strong post score for Quinter. With the Lady Indians in the bonus early, it appeared as if the bonus may help the Lady Indians reduce the margin before halftime. St. Francis tied the game by the halftime break, but the bonus had nothing to do with it. Bracelin's assist led to another score by Dinkel, and Taighe Weeter soon added a stick-back basket (1:05). Jylian Laten's assist set up a post score by Zoe Sundstrom, and with 10 seconds remaining, Dinkel was fouled on a drive to the basket. Emileigh sank both free-throws tying the game at 29-all at the break.

    St. Francis took their first lead since early in the first period on a basket by Taighe Weeter to open the second half. Quinter answered on their next possession. An assist by Emileigh Dinkel set up a fast-break score by Zoe Sundstrom. Crist answered in the lane for the Lady Bulldogs tying the contest at 33-all. Quinter retook the lead (33-35) on a fast-break basket when the Lady Indians failed to have a defensive safety. After Reagan Beims and Brooke Blackwill (5' 5" Sr.) traded two free-throws, a left-wing trey by Karly Bandel put the Lady Indians in front again (38-37). It would be the last lead the Lady Indians would hold in the period, as Sarah Bird added four consecutive points to move the scoreboard to 38-41. Weeter followed with a nice press offense basket (assist Jylian Laten) after each Lady Indian touched the ball in transition on a well-executed play. Crist added a deep-two, and Havlas scored on three consecutive post-moves to increase the lead to 41-49. St. Francis closed the quarter with two free-throws by Bracelin and one by Weeter. The Lady Indians trailed 44-49 after three periods of play.

    The deficit increased to 44-53 quickly as Quinter earned two fast-break baskets early in the final period. Lauren Johnson's assist then set up a fast-break basket by Emileigh Dinkel for the Lady Indians. St. Francis moved into the double-bonus with 5:48 left in the game hoping to capitalize on the advantage in this half. Lindsey Johnson added a free-throw and a left-wing score (assist Taighe Weeter). Hanna Bracelin then sank one-of-two after being fouled on a break (50-53). Zoe Sundstrom added another free-throw after being fouled on an offensive rebound. The foul was the 4th on Quinter's strong post player, Peyton Havlas. With 4:34 remaining in the game, Dinkel swished a trey (assist Bracelin) giving the Lady Indians a 54-53 lead. Blackwill answered from the left-wing on the next possession for the Lady Bulldogs. Quinter then called time-out to discuss strategy. With the Lady Indians playing zone defense, it appeared that the plan was to be patient with the ball in an attempt to use Havlas' strength inside. Soon the Lady Bulldogs execution payed off; Havlas scored from the post increasing the lead to 54-57. Unfortunately, the Lady Indians turned the ball over on their next possession. The mistake led to two Havlas free-throws. Sarah Bird's lay-up on the next Quinter possession increased the lead to 54-61 with 2:52 remaining. After a Quinter time-out, Lauren Johnson's assist led to a trey by Hanna Bracelin at 2:29 (57-61). It would be the last score of the game for the Lady Indians. Quinter went on to make 6 of 12 free-throw attempts to seal a 57-67 win.

    Emileigh Dinkel (14) and Hanna Bracelin (13) led the Lady Indians in scoring. Others scoring for St. Francis included Taighe Weeter 9, Zoe Sundstrom 7, Lauren Johnson 5, Lindsey Johnson 3, Karly Bandel 3, Reagan Beims 2, and Madi Tice 1. The Lady Indians made 12 of 22 from the stripe. Lindsey Johnson grabbed 10 rebounds in the contest.

    Peyton Havlas led Quinter with 19 points and 12 rebounds. Kylie Crist scored 15 for the Lady Bulldogs. Quinter made 19 of 35 from the free-throw line.

    The Lady Indians will play Cheylin at 3:00 p.m. in the North Gym at Brewster High School on Monday, December 5. The game will open the Sagebrush Classic Basketball Tournament that runs through December 10.

    Indians Swat The Hornets

    The St. Francis Junior High basketball teams defeated the Dighton Hornets on Thursday, December 1, in St. Francis. St. Francis won the B-Team contest 29-19 and the A-Team game 53-21.

    In B-Team action at the Grade School, both teams had trouble scoring in the first period. The Indians did not score, and the Hornets could only muster 2 points. The Indians found the net in the second stanza - with regularity. The Indians swished four treys and tallied 23 points to lead 23-2 at halftime. Preston Witzel scored 16 points during the second period and Ben Busse added seven. Though the Indians only scored 6 points in the second half, it was enough to hold on for a 29-19 win.

    Indians scoring for St. Francis in the B-Team game were:  Preston Witzel 16, Ben Busse 12, and Rylan Doyle 2. The Indians made one of the two free-throws attempted. Dighton was led by J.C. Payne with 9 and Max Neeley with 6. The Hornets converted 0 of 6 from the line.

    The A-Team game was controlled by the Indians from the outset. St. Francis jumped out to a 10-0 lead getting several fast-break baskets with good teamwork. An assist by Kobe Tice to Colton Neitzel moved the score to 6-0. Shadryon Blanka followed with a lay-up. Jesse Baxter added a bucket to make the lead double-digits. Canden Bauer scored the first Dighton basket at 2:50, and Blaine Whipple followed with an offensive rebound score (10-4). Another Tice assist on Baxter's trey from the right corner triggered a second Dighton time-out. Adam Krien scored on a floater in the lane on the next possession. Jayden Coleman's left corner shot moved the Hornet's total to 6. Baxter closed the first quarter with an offensive rebound score. The Indians led 17-6.

    The second period was played more evenly by the two teams. Bauer opened the second quarter with an offensive rebound score. Ben Busse followed with a right corner trey. Dighton's J.C. Payne then scored a basket when the Hornets executed well on press offense. Consecutive baskets by the Indians, the second a stick-back by Colton Neitzel, extended the lead to 14 points (25-11). The quarter concluded with a Dighton out-of-bounds play bucket and a left-wing shot by Gavin Cooper for the Indians. St. Francis lead 27-13 at halftime.

    The Indians opened the third period with a 10-point run getting two baskets from Jesse Baxter (steal-two and an assist by Colton Neitzel), a left-wing shot from Neitzel, an offensive rebound by Adam Krien, and a lay-up by Kobe Tice (assist Shadryon Blanka). The margin quickly grew to 36-13. The run ended when Bauer scored on an offensive rebound for the Hornets. St. Francis closed with two hoops from Blanka. The scores came on an offensive rebound (plus one) and lay-up after a block by Neitzel. St. Francis led 41-15 after three periods.

    Porter Stephens opened the final period with a left-corner trey for the Hornets. It would be one of two baskets the Hornets would get in the period as the Indians continued to dominate defensively. Adam Krien's assists set up the next two St. Francis baskets; an out-of-bounds play score by Jesse Baxter and a lay-up by Shadryon Blanka. Krien's post score moved the advantage past 30 points (49-18). The final two scores of the contest came on a trey by Dighton's Coleman and a score by Preston Witzel on a post-split. St. Francis defeated the Hornets 53-21.

    Seventh grader Jayden Coleman led the Hornets with 10 points. St. Francis was led in scoring by Jesse Baxter with 21 points. Other Indians adding to the point total were Shadryon Blanka 9, Adam Krien 8, Colton Neitel 6, Ben Busse 3, Kobe Tice 2, Preston Witzel 2, and Gavin Cooper 2. The Indians made 3 of 4 from the line. Dighton was 1 of 4.

    St. Francis will play Decatur Community in Oberlin on Monday, December 5.

Emma Johnson gave St. Francis a short-lived lead with a steal-two, but Whipple soon answered with a trey from the left corner. Consecutive free-throws by Weeter put the Lady Indians back in front for a few moments, but it would be the last lead the Lady Indians would possess. Whipple's baseline basket placed the Lady Hornets in front for good (6-7). A pair of free-throws, a right baseline shot by Whipple, and a post move by Emily Wilms, advanced the margin to 6-13. Jesslynn Houtman's baseline shot closed the first period with the Lady Indians trailing 8-13.

    The Lady Hornets extended their lead to 8-17 on a steal-two and a fast break basket early in the second period. McKenna Poling's free-throw preceded Wilms' out-of-bounds play basket. The lead became double-digits (9-19). Talexa Weeter sank consecutive free-throws late in the half and Dighton closed with a steal-two by P.J. Suppes. St Francis trailed at halftime, 11-21.

    The Lady Indians continued to fight hard in the second half, but Dighton's rebounding strength and defensive pressure made it difficult to trim into the deficit. Quick baskets by Traci Cramer and Whipple were followed by an offensive rebound by McKenna Poling. Dighton then reeled off a run of seven points to lead 13-32. Poling scored at the third quarter buzzer off an assist by Kattie Wurm to make the score 15-32.

    Emma Johnson opened the final period with a free-throw, and Jordan Faulkender followed with a stick-back basket (18-32). Dighton then scored five unanswered points before Jesslynn Houtman made one-of-two from the line. Two baskets by Onesti McMurray and a pair of free-throws by Cramer increased the deficit to 19-43. The Lady Indians closed the game with a steal-two by Hadleigh Hilt and a free-throw by Amanda Neitzel. St. Francis lost the A-Team game to a good Dighton team 22-43.

    In the third period, Dighton increased their lead to 10-18. The Lady Indians received baskets by Lydia Jenkins (2), Jesslynn Houtman, and Rian Zimbal plus a free-throw from Amy Jenkins; but the Lady Hornets also scored seven points to match the Lady Indians.

  • Drama Class to Present "A Christmas Carol"

    The SFCHS Drama class is pleased to present A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens, a perennial holiday favorite. This timeless story captures the essence of Christmas in that Scrooge, the main character, an avowed cynic and misanthrope, learns to value the truly important things in life:  friendship, compassion, and kindness towards her fellow man. Yes, you read that correctly-- “her” because our Scrooge is female. Jenna Confer brings a modern twist to the classic tale by playing Scrooge as a woman. In addition, each of the four ghosts in the play adds his or her own special flavor to the play. Taylor Rogers as Marley, Hanna Bracelin as the Ghost of Christmas Past, Jerry Neitzel as the Ghost of Christmas Present, and Shelby Wolff as the Phantom of Christmases yet to come anchor the three middle staves in fetching and memorable ways. Brock Waters is our tender but hapless Bob Cratchit, and Danielle Frink serves as the all-important narrator. Tressa LaBarge wears many hats (or many costumes) in this performance and shows just how versatile an actress she is. Rounding out the cast are many first time Drama students. Coy DeWaal delights as Fred, Luin Norris and Dalton Straub have killer accents, and Jessica Confer earns her acting stripes by tackling three different roles. Zoe Sundstrom, Lindsey Johnson, Lauren Johnson, Madi Tice, JR Landenberger, Luke Lampe, and Alex Queen fill out the cast and fill the play with stellar performances. And lest we forget the glue that binds it all together, I must give room and major props (pun intended) to our crew:  Ryan Grover, Quinton Cravens, Tate Busse, and Jordan Raby.

    We hope you will make room in your schedule and in your heart for the beautiful message this play presents. Come,come and witness the transformation of the miserly and unhappy Scrooge into the best Christmas-keeper of all.

    Saint Francis FFA Takes 10th at District Vet Science Competition

    Saint Francis FFA took a senior team to compete at the district Vet Science Career Development Event on Tuesday, November 29 in Stockton, Kansas.

    “Competing in vet science is just one of multiple CDEs I will be competing in to better myself in FFA,” said Saint Francis junior Coy DeWaal.

    At the Vet Science CDE, students took a 50-question test along with a math test that was 10 questions and identified 50 different vet tools, animals, and parasites. They had 654 choices to choose from when identifying these animals, parasites, and tools. 

    “I think I competed very well. I did better than I thought I would,” said Emileigh Dinkel, Saint Francis Junior.

    In the end, the team finished in 10th place. Out of 95 competitors, Mason Schmid, Saint Francis sophomore, placed highest on the team in 34th place. Behind him was Emileigh Dinkel, Saint Francis junior, in 41st place, Reagan Beims, Saint Francis junior, in 55th, and Joel Hill, Saint Francis senior, in 59th place. 

    “It’s a lot of work, but if you’re interested in being a vet it’s a lot of fun,” said Mason Schmid, Saint Francis sophomore.
